Scaling-up with Integrity: An Indigienous Approach to Regenerative Agriculture

Focused on regenerative poultry as a blueprint, Regi will outline a decolonizing approach to working with nature. Using an indigenous way of thinking, he will highlight how the regenerative poultry system can optimize farm output and quality while minimizing cost and stress. This multi-dimensional poultry system exemplifies the principles and practices of regenerative agriculture (increase biodiversity, enrich soils, and enhance ecosystems), a growing philosophy that optimizes ecological services for the farmer, the community, and the world. 


The Welcome and Keynote Presentation will begin at 8:45am. This presentation is FREE and open to the public!
